4 Swift I ascend the heavenly place,
And hasten to my home;
I come, O Lord, I come.
Let sin and death remove; 'Tis love that drives my chariot wheels,
And death must yield to love.
4th P. M. 886, 886.
Whose hours divided are
Our night in praise and prayer. 2 With us no melancholy void, No moment lingers unemploy'd,
Or unimproved, below :
And only thee to know. 3 The winter's night, and summer's day, Glide imperceptibly away,
Too short to sing thy praise; Too few we find the happy hours, And haste to join those heavenly powers
In everlasting lays. 4 With all who chant thy name on high, And, Holy, holy, holy, cry,
(A bright, harmonious throng!) We long thy praises to repeat, And ceaseless sing around thy seat
The new eternal song.
& The winerceptibly thy pro hours,
hose here countlet God word forever ,
"Stand up, and bless the Lord forever.” THOU, Lord, art God alone : 1 Those countless worlds of thine, Those heavens and heavenly spirits, own
Thy majesty divine.
Great universal Lord;
By thy preserving word.
Thy gracious Name to bless ; And thee, the Lord of earth and skies,
We joyfully confess. 4 Our joy, to sing of thee;
To triumph in thy love; And this, transporting thought, shall be
Our endless work above. 913
S. M. Delight in God. T ORD! I delight in thee, | And on thy care depend; To thee in every trouble flee,
My best, my only Friend. 2 When nature's streams are dried,
Thy fulness is the same; With this will I be satisfied,
And glory in thy Name.
Will here all good provide :
What can I want beside ? 4 I cast my care on thee!
I triumph and adore :
To love and please thee more.
8th P. M. 87, 87, 47.
My Redeemer from all sin;
I will praise thee:
He hath brought salvation near;
Soul and body
Glory to the great I AM,
O how precious
Unperceived amid the throng;
Hallelujah, Love and praise to Christ belong ! 915 21st P. M. 66, 84, 66, 84.
Triumphant trust in God.
I joy to prove.
I view the verdant scene,
Through pastures green,
2 In error's maze my soul
Shall wander now no more;
The lost restore :
In paths of righteousness;
His mercy bless.
3 Affliction's deepest gloom
Shall but his love display ;
With living ray.
Shall thankfully adore ;
4 His goodness ever nigh,
His mercy ever free,
Still follow me.
His boundless blessings prove;
Adore and love.
10th P. M. 8 lines 8s. Longing for still closer communion. THOU Shepherd of Israel, and mine, 1 The joy and desire of my heart, For closer communion I pine ;
I long to reside where thou art: The pasture I languish to find,
Where all, who their Shepherd obey, Are fed, on thy bosom reclined,
And screen'd from the heat of the day.
2 'Tis there, with the lambs of thy flock,
There only, I covet to rest; To lie at the foot of the rock,
Or rise to be hid in thy breast : 'Tis there I would always abide,
And never a moment depart,Conceald in the cleft of thy side,
Eternally held in thy heart.
1st P. M. 6 lines 8s.
Jesus all and in all.
I Thou all-sufficient Love divine,
Secure I am while thou art mine: And lo! from sin, and grief, and shame, I hide me, Jesus, in thy name.
2 Thy mighty name salvation is,
And keeps my happy soul above: Comfort it brings, and power, and peace,
And joy, and everlasting love:
My rest in toil, my ease in pain;
In war, my peace; in loss, my gain; My smile beneath the tyrant's frown; In shame, my glory and my crown:
4 In want, my plentiful supply;
In weakness, my almighty power;
My light, in Satan's darkest hour;
